This place offered a large variety of taps and the food was delicious; good if you want a quick bite and some great beer.

I have eaten many good seafood platters across the gulf coast and I would rate this very good. Only 20 dollars and my wife and I couldn't eat it all as a shared meal. Highly recommend 😎

This is a fun stop near the end of the St. Charles line, just part the Garden District when the trolley takes a sharp right turn. We followed some locals who were having a birthday celebration (on the trolley and everywhere else) into Cooter Brown's....More

If you take the street car, get off where the St Charles line turns onto Carrollton. Very carefully cross back over the tracks and through traffic. They boast 400 beers. Draft specials and bottles galore. While I do enjoy a good beer list I found...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
